I did not attempt work today. At 9 last night the pain was so intense I was crying. Two Tylenol P.M.'s did the trick and I slept until 8 this morning. I took Advils on a regular basis and stayed off the leg most of the day. By 8 tonight it felt good enough to attempt a shower. I am going to work tomorrow....so I have everything out and ready....and called my boss to make sure the elevator was on so I did not have to attempt the stairs. I am going with the walker. I have decided that I don't need to let pride get in the way here. I will just look like an old lady tomorrow. Frank has been neighing all day when I asked for something. Larry, one of the Rock Mills members, told me yesterday to ride the pity pony as long as I can. I have to admit...everytime Frank neighs I find it extremely funny. He has been a great nurse. I have had meals delivered in bed....or on the couch. I have never wanted for something to drink. He has been a dear....which is probably more than I could say about myself. This has been a true learning experience for me....to let others do for me.....when in need. Keep the prayers coming that I will make it through the day tomorrow....and that the foot and knee will continue to heal. Sigh!
I am a woman who wears many hats and loves them all. I am a singer - I sing with the group Still Magnolias. I was part of the original First United Methodist Church Arbor Praise Team until we moved. After 24+ years of teaching English 11 and Spanish I - II at Benjamin Russell High School I decided to take a job closer to home. I now teach Spanish I & 2 at Randolph Co. High School and Wadley. I thought I was getting close to retirement and looking forward to it, but decided to move my cheese and try something different. I am a preacher's wife and a preacher myself. My husband Frank is the pastor at Rock Mills United Methodist Church and I am the pastor at Midway (Wedowee). It has made our conversations interesting, to say the least.
